Fondo Ecuatoriano Populorum Progressio

The achievements of Fondo Ecuatoriano Populorum Progressio (FEPP) have been both significant and numerous.

They include: reforestation of 3,000 hectares of tropical and high Andean woodland with native species (1996-2000); design and implementation of 418 sustainable management plans in humid tropical woodlands (1998-2000); development of 3,158 hectares of farmland under the integral management concept, benefiting more than 1,000 poor families in the humid tropics and the forest margin (1997-2000); development of 5,165 hectares of cropland under the agro-forestry system (1996-2000); development of a forest inventory of 12,463 hectares of native woodland with the participation of the indigenous tenant farmer and Afro-Ecuadorian populations which enabled the assessment of the non-wood resources of the forest for sustainable exploitation (1993-2000); management of 612 hectares of virgin woodland by pruning and thinning out thus enabling the local population to exploit its resources in a sustainable manner (1993-2000); construction of slow-forming terraces, soil improvement with plant material, cultivation, water catchment conservation and production of humus in various parts of the country (1995-2000); monitoring of water quality in areas surrounding Yasuni National Park (1998-2001); monitoring of mammalian species to determine the degree of impact of deforestation in areas of settlement adjoining Yasuni National Park (1998-1999); delimitation of 32 kms and placement of signs showing indicative forest species within Yasuni National Park and Mache Chindul Reserve, in collaboration with the Ministry of Environment (1999-2001); and the provision of support for land tenure conflict resolution in Yasuni National Park and Mache Chindul Reserve whereby 25 communities with more than 180,000 hectares benefited (1996-2001).
